    From another NG.
    "380 PowRball can be ordered now. It will ship on Monday or Tuesday.
    It is a 70 gr PowRball at 1250 FPS and has 243 ft/lbs of energy".

    Pistol used was a Walther PPK.

    At 1250 fps and 243 ft/lbs of energy, this cartridge could be a major improvement in 380 performance!

    Not if it comes at the expense of penetration -- what .380 is lacking the most.

    Agreed!
    The guys at "stoppingpower.net" are supposed to gelatin test the new PB
    380 round on July 3rd and then we can see if it lacks penetration.
